Creates a Broader Perspective of USA Problems
To the reviewer below: Were you watching Deep Dish or Faux News?
One can love their country and her Constitution and still be critical. If we aren't critical of those we love, they will live in denial and won't improve.
Your passion for the flag and patriotism and not for what our Constitution or international law or decency and morals support make me afraid that you, too, are showing symptoms of fascism.
Check out Fascism Watch and check the symptoms. There is help, however. Keep watching Dish TV and DemocracyNow! Independent media can cure this shocking new outbreak infecting our country.

Yes we are evil
Thanks for not showing any of the good parts of what happened, that would give the realists and logical folks ammunition and we sure don't want them to have any more "convenient" facts to prove us wrong.
Let's go against our gut feeling and what are brains are screaming and just embrace our enemies.
It is the US that kills women who try to annul a marriage they were forced into at 9 years old, like one of mohameds wives.
It is the US that flew those planes into the trade center and pentagon.
It was the US who went against numerous UN articles and demands for weapons inspections.
It is the US that went against the dozens of countries that went along with us...?
It is the US that will execute you from changing your religion.
It is the US that will punish a rape victim more than the rapist.
It is the US that cuts the clitori off of girls and forces them into hiding their face.
It is the US that denies woman the right to vote, drive, go to school, show their faces, testify in court, run for vice president, etc.
It is the US that forbids other religions from setting up synagogs, mosques, churches and obama style greek temples... I mean just look around? Do you see any diverse races, religions or ethnicites freely working on the american dream? I thougt so.
It was the US that took those iranian hostages in 1979.
It was the US that chants death to isreal, death to christians, death to jews, death to the UK.
It is the US that is trying to instill sharia law in europe and erase a vibrant culture in exchange for a midevil tyranny.
It is the US that is out to prohibit music, moving pictures, haram books, pork products, coed chit chat, valentines day cards, video games, sculptures, ancient buddhist statues, various limbs, etc.
It is the US that bombed pearl harbor.
It is the US that started aids to be racist.
It is the US that denies food aid to tsunami victims, earthquake victims, flood victims, famine victims, etc.
It is the US that forced the horrible post war conditions on Japan and Germany that turned them into the cesspools of failed culture they are today.
It is the US that has had the power to wipe out the entire planet and just sat there trying to keep the peace, oops... that did not happen, sorry.
It is the downright mean US that is so racist that a black candidate only has a 50% shot in the polls.
It is the US that keep women from running for president, vp, congress, senate, governer, mayor, class president.
It is he US that makes up all the fiction about medicine, sanitation, famine relief, automation, capitalism, entrapeneurship and other lies to deceive the people it "helps".
DOWN THE USA
WE ALSO WERE SECRETLY ROOTING FOR HITLER DURING WW2 BUT WE WERE NOT PROGRESSIVE ENOUGH TO ADMIT IT THEN.
Stop the empirical domination and forcefeeding of democracy and freedom on happily suppressed peasants worldwide.

Insightful & well researched
A Very INSIGHTFUL documentary, deeply researched and factually correct. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to understand the dirty face of war and the propaganda of lies from the Pentagon to justify whatever they do.
